I HAVE READ, UNDERSTAND, AND AGREE TO THE FOLLOWING:
I agree that I am the legal owner of any pet(s) that I have scheduled to stay at Country Acres Pet Boarding. I agree my pet is not a 'show animal' and does not participate in any dog,cat, or pet shows. I also agree that the pet does not generate revenue or income and there is no anticipated revenue or income in the future.
I agree that my pet is healthy and has not been ill in the past 30 days. If your pet is exhibiting any symptoms that my suggest illness such as sneezing, coughing, wheezing, runny eyes or nose, vomiting, lethargy, or diarrhea please do not bring your pet to boarding or daycare.
I understand that vaccination records from a veterinarian must be presented at first check-in and updated yearly. All pets are required to have current rabies vaccines as well as core vaccinations recommended by your vet. If your pet requires an updated vaccination please make arrangements for the vaccination to be administered no less than ten days before any boarding time is scheduled. All dogs need a minimum of Rabies and (DHPP) vaccination for canine distemper, hepatitis, parainfluenza, and parvovirus. All cats need a minimum of Rabies and (FVRCP) for feline rhinotracheitis, feline calicivirus, and feline panleukopenia
Dogs are recommended to get a Bordetella vaccination every (6) six months as a preventative against kennel/canine cough. The Bordetalla vaccination is not 100% effective and Country Acres Pet Boarding makes no guarantees in regards to its efficacy. Kennel cough is an extremely contagious upper respiratory virus and there is always a risk that a dog(s) could contract kennel cough during their stay even if they are current on the Bordetella vaccinations. The staff at Country Acres Pet Boarding promises to take steps to avoid the spread of this illness but even in the most hygienic, well ventilated, spacious kennels the possibility of a dog acquiring kennel cough still exists.
I understand that all pets must be free from external parasites. If my pet is found to have fleas or ticks they will be treated with dip and/or a topical application of Frontline and a fee of $15 will be charged at pick-up.
I agree to be solely responsible for any and all acts of behavior of my pet while it is in the care of Country Acres Pet Boarding and release Country Acres Pet Boarding of any liability arising from my pet's attendance and participation in daycare or boarding. I agree to disclose any behavioral traits of the pet which may become apparent during the pet's stay. I agree to be financially responsible for kennel property damaged by my pet and any injury or harm my pet causes to other pets or persons.
I agree to provide Country Acres Pet Boarding with an adequate history of my pet and have disclosed any unusual traits, illnesses, injury, allergy, or other issues that my require special care and in the absence of such instruction, acknowledge that ordinary attention and care is reasonable for the pet.
I agree to inform the staff of Country Acres Pet Boarding if my pet is aggressive towards people, other animals, during feeding, with toys, or any other times. For the safety of our staff, animals that are aggressive towards humans or have fear aggression issues will not be allowed to stay at the kennel
Due to the social nature of our kennel and services there are some inherent risk that include, but not limited to, transfer of communicable disease and injury. Injuries may include broken nails, sore feet, puncture wounds, abrasions, and cuts. I understand that my dog(s) will be playing in open areas with other dog(s) and accept that when dogs play in groups they will get dirty, and nicks/cuts/scratches may occur, as well as other inherent risks that are involved and I release Country Acres Pet Boarding from any liability and agree that the staff will not be held liable for any or all problems that may develop. You must notify the staff at the time of drop-off if you do not want your dog to participate in group play.
I understand if my pet becomes ill or if the pet's health otherwise requires attention and the staff of Country Acres Pet Boarding is unable to contact the owner or another authorized person, the pet will be treated as deemed necessary by the first available veterinarian. Medication will be administered as necessary under the direction of the veterinarian. The pet's owner, as listed above, assumes full financial responsibility for any and all expenses involved.
I understand that if my dog is not spayed or neutered they will not be allowed to participate in group playtime with other dogs. Private play is an option for unaltered dogs. Country Acres Pet Boarding will not keep females that are pregnant or in heat.
Payment is due either at drop-off or pick-up. Pets cannot leave until the bill is paid in full. If the pet will not be picked up on the scheduled dismissal date, the owner must contact Country Acres Pet Boarding to make arrangements to extend the animal's stay. A pet that is unclaimed for ten (10) days beyond the scheduled discharge date is considered abandoned and will become property of Country Acres Pet Boarding and will be disposed of publicly or privately. The owner shall remain liable for complete boarding fees as well as other charges incurred in the care, maintenance, and disposal of said pet.
I authorize Country Acres Pet Boarding to take pictures of my pet while participating in kennel activities and use them on its website, social media accounts, and in promotional materials
